I had to drop off a movie at the library today, I couldn't renew it cuz someone requested it. Our YMCA is right next door, really it is. They share the same driveway.... so lol I had to go, even though I didn't feel like exercising at all.I had to make the trip worth wild I guess lol I got done exercising and headed off to the grocery store which is right down the street ... While driving there I get into my ? I really don't know what to call it. It's so weird ... It's a mean craving for raw vegetables ... After exercising (or walking/hiking etc) I want raw vegetables. It's not a normal "want" ... it's more like a terrible "NEED!" ... so I get to the grocery store and go in and what is the first thing I see? RAW VEGETABLES! Ugh ... I kept telling myself "I know I have some at home I can eat since I slurged to buy some last time I exercised" ... of course I couldn't leave without any, I did tried lol I bought some iceberg lettuce which I don't like much but I get it for my daughter and my other half, and some romaine lettuce for me, and tomatoes which made me think of BLTs ... So that's what's for dinner BLTs ... Mine will be a lettuce wraps. I got a cucumber too ... maybe I can put that on my wrap too! I'm gonna try it. I take the big leaves of romaine lettuce and put on a piece of bacon on it, plus tomatoes and a ton of black pepper, and drizzle of ranch dressing and then I try to roll them up, but they are more like a taco. I LOVE THEM! I haven't made them for awhile since it's been cold. Anyways, so I get home, climb to my 3rd floor apt while dying for my raw veggies, put all the groeries away and finally got out the celery and radishes ... cleaned them, and ate a ton as if I haven't ate in a month! Strange stuff huh? lol

"When you're curious, you find lots of interesting things to do." ~Walt Disney


I was curious this morning lol ... I wanted to find a new area to walk just for a change. So I went in the opposite direction than I usually go which ended up with the paved walking path ending on State Rd. So I went past State Rd in hopes paved walking path would appear but it didn't. So I turned around and turned on State Rd and drove all the way to Hinkley! I made it there by myself! I was so happy! I prayed the whole time to find it and to find my way back lol I did it ... I can't believe it! But I was too scared to get off of State Rd in fear of getting lost (there's something wrong with our GPS). I found the The Buzzard's Roost and decided to turn and park there ... Across from it was Scenic Overview ... The parks here are just breathtaking!


Here is the Scenic Overview ...



And here is the Paved Walking  Path ...


It was simply beautiful, but the hills where killer! lol I couldn't take any more pictures because I turned my Endomondo tracker on to track my miles and stuff. But I walked to the boat house and around to Hinkley Lake and to Bellus Rd and then turned around to head back. I walked 3.70 miles and burned 506 calories! Wahoo!

Came home and had lunch ... Yonanas (icecream from only frozen fruit)!! I used bananas, strawberries, grapes, blueberries, pineapple, and an orange slice or two and mixed in a spoonful of peanut butter after it was done. YUMMMMM



Well I am off! I didn't realize it was so late.

Shine your sink!

Years and years ago I used to do the "flylady cleaning routines" (flylady.net) and I still hear it in the back of my head "shine your sink!" everytime I see my kitchen a mess with dirty dishes. I hate dirty dishes, I hate them sitting on the counter, I hate them sitting in the in the sink, I hate them sitting on the drying rack cluttering it up. But mostly I hate washing them! UGH -- Last night I left the dirty dishes sit over night and said I'd get them in the morning... I got up to make coffee and the stress of "shine your sink!" hit me. So I hurried up with making coffee just to "shine your sink!" and forgot to put the coffee pot on the coffee maker ... lol Thank God I heard it sizzling in time to put the pot on it before it overflowed too much ... else I would of had to "shine your floor!".
